does the gentlelady from texas seek recognition? ms. jackson lee: to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentlelady from texas is recognized for one minute. ms. jackson lee: i join with my earlier colleague on acknowledging the 150th year of the emancipation proclamation, what a moving moment. last evening at the national archives when i read the words, hence forth these slaves are freed. i rise with a more optimistic view and a view that says that we have the opportunity to do what is right by the american people. but we must also recognize that we have to tell truth. at the end of the clinton administration this nation had $5 trillion in surplus. with wasteful tax cuts and spending by our republican friends, we find ourself in this deficit. i don't know what my decision will be as we move forward on this issue of the fiscal cliff, but i will say this, we will not tolerate the american people being held hostage over the debt ceiling. and these unhelpful cuts that will cut into those who are the most vulnerable. that will not be the pathwa

jackson about this very bizarre case. >>> parents need to be concerned and should be concerned. the facts here are different. so when you look at parenting, yes, we all as parents want the best for our children. but it's another thing to become obsessive. and here the line certainly was crossed according to the judge and according to the fact. when you start installing monitoring devices, okay, some parents want to see what their children are doing. when you travel from kansas to ohio where your daughter is in school unannounced, then you go to per peers in addition to administrators and talk to administrators about my daughter needs a mental health evaluation. she's promiscuous, she's abusive, engaged in assaulted behavior. it's enough. therefore, the message here is the law applies equally to everyone. whether you're a parent, whether you're a friend, whether you're a family member, you have to behave in accordance with certain protocol. and that means what you do is you don't cross that line and you don't do things which cause threat, intimidation, and fear in your daughter. >> okay. w
